  • Yates Deadlifts anyone??

    I am going to work these into my back thickeness routine. I totally forgot about this version of deadlifts, since for the longest time I was unable to properly deadlift (no chalk allowed, poor equipment). Now both of those things are a non issue, so I want to work them back in. For anyone wondering what they are, essentially a deadlift where only go down mid shin. It is basically a partial deadlift, or a rack deadlift but you keep the tension because youre not resting the bar.

    So is this the same as a dimmel dead and a Romanian dead lift?

      Looks like a RDL to me.

        Just learned what a Dimmel deadlift is, and yes same thing. RDL are different... more about pushing your ass back to stretch the ham strings and leaving little bend in the knee. Not the same.

          I guess it is also called a snatch grip deadlift, a very effective movement for olympic lifters - for BB purposes it's pretty much a brutal trap killer deadlift. <3

            A snatch grip deadlift is a deadlift with a super wide grip. You would still touch between reps. Not like a Dimel/Yates deadlift at all.
            The average silverback gorilla in the wild is between 5'7 and 5'11, and weighs between 298 and 397 pounds (according to wikipedia). Why not shoot for that?

                Those snatch grip variations are on my list for tomorrow - have never tried them - maybe my traps can finally get some height!

                    I am switching stuff up a tad for this new blast starting next week, my thickness exercises are like this:

                    -Reeves Deadlift to mid shin with shrug at to.
                    - Machine row (Bar to lower pec line)
                    -Incline bench supported dumbbell rows (pulling weight lower)

                      I like it, I'm going to rotate these in with the sumo deads I usually do.

                        doing deadlifts for about a month now, i started very light weight (120lbs). after doing a lot of research and watching videos, i can say my form is correct but every time i do deadlift my lower back back become stiff but it not sore or whatsoever its just stiff, is it ok to be tight and stiff right after doing deadlifts?
